how to allow only one session in Windows 2003

Posted on 2008-11-06

This one is pretty easy, on our 2003 server boxes we run some services as administrator that mess things up when triggered more than once. A typical scenario is a guy from IT connects to the remote server from our main offices and after a while another one does the same from somewhere else. This creates a problem so what I want to do is to disable multiple sessions so that only one session will be allowed.

I know it can be done because we have it in our other windows 2003 servers, but this one is a fresh installation and can't seem to find it, although I have found how to log off/disconnect a user after inactivity etc (in Users, properties, Sessions tab).

Any ideas?

    I think you want the "Network Adapter" tab and change the max connection count. Screenshot attached.
